Ripping one, cutting the cheese, floating an air biscuit aka farting is a turn on for some sexual partners, according to a recent survey released by seniorliving.org.
The survey, aptly named, Everybody Poops and Farts took a closer look at how our men and women really feel about farts, how we try hiding them and other oddities like people that get turned on by them.
Considering that both men and women fart at least 20 times a day, we’re all on this together.
Let’s jump into some of the survey’s results:
How guys try to mask a fart—
- 75 percent try the ol’ go-to: holding it in
- 58 percent slip off to another room
- 54 percent head out to the great outdoors
- 25 percent try to create a distraction by hiding it with noise such as making a fart sound with your mouth.
I can recall countless dates (usually following a dinner out at a Mexican restaurant) where one false move and a million farts would explode. Most people and I assumed my dates would be grossed-out or even replused by flatulence. And personally speaking, the feeling is mutual when my date farts.
This makes sense since the survey points to an average of 6.5 months before a guy cracks one in front of his partner—on purpose. Women wait an estimated 1.3 years
Guys wait 6.5 months on average to fart in front of their girlfriend or partner. Women tend to take longer, waiting on average 1.3 YEARS.
Now, let’s get to those in the survey that apparently are real freaks and get turned on by a fart. It’s a mere 11 percent for guys and 3 percent of women that think it’s hot. Anything over 1 percent is nasty and the survey also cited that 28 percent of guys have ruined the mood after cracking one while in bed with their partner.
